Bardstown pharmacist faces federal charges

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The owner of a Nelson County pharmacy could go from the drug store to prison if he is convicted of federal fraud charges. 

On February 28, 2012, FBI agents, assisted by Kentucky State Police, executed a search warrant at Crume Drug Store on Flaget Street in Bardstown. It was learned Friday the store's owner, Timothy Sizemore, has been charged with healthcare fraud and wire fraud.

The U. S. Attorney's Office said Sizemore used patients and doctors names to create fake prescriptions and billed Anthem and Medicare Part D for those prescriptions which were never filled.

Sizemore could be sentenced to 30 years in prison if convicted.
